Comment (by tradesouthwest@…):

 Aside is not appropriate for sidebars. Most all sidebars do not contain
 'article' or 'section', 'header', 'article' content that is "aside" the
 article content. i think everyone is mislead on the standard of this
 sematic. Aside for a widget is far from appropriate and would not pass
 standards as to the correct use of 'aside'.

 I will never use aside semantic for a sidebar as it has nothing to do with
 "aside" the content. Please refer to HTML5 reference to get this right.

 As of writing, the only web browser completely support date time input is
 In HTML5, it is the job of web browser to ensure user can only enter a
 valid date time string
 into the input textbox.

 Picking a date from Calendar is not the only way to input a date value
 even though it's the most popular implementation.
 HTML5 specifications does not mention anything about displaying a calendar
 for date input.
